About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

So lovely! Haven’t looked at your blog in a while and was really pleased to see you have taken up cross stitch. I have just discovered it myself and have been looking for a pattern app. Would you consider selling the app to people so they too can create their own patterns?

Carol Juniper

So clever and so generous to share your lovely design - many thanks.

Estelle Salem

Lucy I really love your Daisy cross stitch design. I have ordered my fabric today, will make it into a needle case when finished. I wish you would publish a book, even if I never made anything from it the colour "fixes" i would get from your beautiful work would be amazing!

Elaine allerton

Thank you,, so much,,,
Have not cross stitched for years,, and years,,,
Your colors have inspired me, to try again,,,
Love ur sweet simple daisy!!

Helen Lightly

Your cross stitching is simply lovely! I love to cross stitch and am very jealous of your talented app-designing husband! Thank you for sharing the chart with us, is such an adorable little design 😍 thank you for brightening up my days 😊🌱


Thank you so much for sharing this lovely pattern!


Oh that is ever so pretty and so tiny! Great job! As for the flowers, I would have never thought of putting snapdragon in a posy, but it looks splendid!


Fab little pattern. I couldn't get the grid lines to show up well on the print out. Could be our printer settings though. I'm off to buy supplies to make this at the weekend!


Oh, just what I would also like to create! Small and beutiful. Oh , could this application be downloaded? Basic and easy app, please????

Lynne Stankard

Aw Lucy, you are the answer to my prayer!! I needed a tiny daisy chart - and look what you did!! Amazing!
This will be stitched tomorrow, ready to send to my daughter in Portland, Oregon for her Birthday, complete with hoop! Her favourite flower is the daisy! And it will make a nice change from all the Christmas cross stitching I'm doing at the moment xx

Conni Mitkowski

Your little hoop is so lovely! I make the same sort of thing, but when it’s mounted in the hoop, I take a strip os complementary fabric, hem the rough edge, gather it into a ruffle, and hot glue it to the back of the hoop. Makes a nice finishing touch . Sometimes I use eyelet lace.


I'd love to know the name of the book that you have open showing the daisy family. Hope you can let me know, thanks.


Lucy, I just started cross stitching when i saw your lovely stitched coffee cup! thank you for this pattern! i love the small projects best of all. Always something new to learn.


Love it!


That's so lovely but how do you finish off the back once you've framed it in the hoop?

Joya Roy

you're simply a delight of a human being, lucy!

i share your love of cross-stitch. have you seen the old Japanese pattern books? ondori published them and there are quite a few inspiring old-timey (well, 1970's, lol) designs, tho i love your sweet design you've created, and how supportive your J is, and how tech savvy that he can whip something up for you like this. you're a dynamic duo!

if you'd like, i have an extra set of Misako Murayama cross-stitch pattern books i'm happy to share with you. i know you're well inspired already (!) and more than capable of designing your own lovely patterns, but just let me know if you'd like them. i'd be happy to share.



You could have a seasonal display of hoops. Just swap them out size for size on a wall. I take feverfew tincture for migraines (one of the vitamin things I take), nice to see it flower form we don't have it here in northern Canada.

Melody Anderson

Good Morning Lucy, the app sounds like many of us would love using it, might be something worth looking at from that angle. Love your sweet design that will not take so long to do, thank you for sharing it with us. As always, your ideas inspire all of us!!! Happy Stitching from Iowa

Barbara Baines

I knew it wouldn't be long before you made your own pattern! Well done, it is beautiful. I will stitch it this weekend, as always thanks for sharing!

Angela - Southern USA

Well done the pair of you! It's lovely! I could definitely see a collection.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sara Anthony-Boon

Oh another beautiful blog.
Such a clever husband and another avenue for your incredible creativity.
Thanks for the link for Tales from a happy house what a lovely blog I have added to my list.


This is lovely Lucy and so handy that J can make you an app to design your own cross stitches. Is there no end to one women's talents.


Cynthia Jones

This is so sweet!! I love to stitch small gifts for my Sunday school girls. This is perfect. I'm so happy you've taken an interest in cross stitch and are using your talents to design. Thank you for offering the free chart.

Trudi Partridge

How sweet is that. My mum was throwing out a pile of wooden embroidery hoops, now I know what to fill them with! I'm loving the idea of strawberries, the funny little wild ones. Somewhere I have an embroidery pattern with strawberries on, perhaps I could try and adapt it. That's my afternoon sorted!

Little Quiltsong

Thank you Lucy - this Daisy cross-stitch is adorable! Cross-stitch is something I love to do - and can do :)! Knitting and crocheting is something I still need to learn. Such pretty flowers you bought. Always enjoy your posts - they just lift the heart!
